Monthly Give Away

I have decided to have a monthly give away of one of my fine art reproductions.
Here is the first one:

It is a 6″x8″ fine art reproduction on bamboo paper on a canvas stretcher. These are OOAK (one of a kind) as I work back into them. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog entry and at the end of the month I will have draw.
Yeah! This sounds like fun!

  6. I love your work. I love the two paintings I bought from you….and I enjoy always checking out your new work! There is a joy in this painting that you have captured all soooo well! Your work I see in a book….I feel like I want to write a book and have you illustrate it!

  10. Maria,
    My sister led me to your site and now I am the proud owner of “What Big Eyes You Have”. Love your work, would welcome a companion piece or maybe a surprise gift to return the favor to my sister. Please put me on your list.

    September 22, 2010 at 4:41 pm

  11. I recently purchased one of your pieces. And, it hangs gloriously in my daughters room. It is fun to look and enjoy with her. I am in awe of your talent and ability. And, I also think it is great you are able to wonderfully share the joys and trials of motherhood in your paintings 🙂

    September 22, 2010 at 8:57 pm

  21. That would be such a beautiful Birthday gift for my grand daughter who looks just like her. She too is such a gentle, beautiful girl too.

    September 22, 2010 at 10:23 pm

  22. Your paintings are a delight to look at – the expression on this one is just so joyful. I would like to be included in the draw, but doubt that mailing to the UK would be an option. Never mind, I can dream……

    September 22, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    • no problem , if you win, I will send it. Surface, of course:)

      September 22, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    hey, I’m within walking distance, too! (I’d even come and get it!). You are one of the artists who we plan to buy from some day [love it]- this would be a step in the right direction!


    September 23, 2010 at 12:09 am

  26. Wow! this is a fantastic idea. Would love to win, not sure you would want to send it all the way to Okinawa, Japan if I did. I’m sure many will be posting so my opportunity of winning will be slim. One per month, that is so cool. Love this picture, the joy of her expression if fantastic!

    September 23, 2010 at 12:45 am

  27. Amy

    Totally sounds like fun!!! Would looooove to win, of course! 🙂

    September 23, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Hi, Just discovered your blog recently and visit it every day. I am fascinated by your work. How sweet would it be to have one of your piece of art in Quebec. You are an inspiration of creativity for me. Keep on.

    September 23, 2010 at 12:17 pm

  37. Trip

    A very happy work, it would make every day start bright and cheery, and add a touch of an endlessly happy summer day to every winter’s day. My favorite also!

  38. Renee Hilgers

    Maria, I consider myself a collector though I don’t always have the budget to buy what I love. There are sooooo many talented artists on daily painters, but I am a lover of figurative work so I have been admiring yours. I wanted to purchase your Mug Shot, but she was sold before I got her. I hope that you do more like her! I am thrilled to be included in your monthly giveaway. Most sincerely, Renee

    September 23, 2010 at 2:23 pm

  39. Maria..I have never— ever, left a comment before…but your painting, has enlightened me. This painting, is so very precious. The sweet little girls expression, says it all. How you have captured a happy little soul on canvas, is really a God given gift to you!

    September 23, 2010 at 4:09 pm

  40. Jeanne Hamilton

    This work put a BIG smile on my face this morning! The shear delight in that beautiful little face is priceless. Thanks for creating such a wonderful piece.

  47. Deb Parrella

    What a great idea and painting! Sign me up!
    Our pre-schoolers have monarch butterflies emerging right now
    and this would be a great gift for their classroom. It captures perfectly their joy and excitement.

  48. Chelsea Harris

    I know it sounds cheesy… but as an artist you come across pieces of work that resonate with you. Your work makes my heart happy and further inspires me to create something in the moment. I use the same color pallet as you… how could I not love your paintings, lol. Thank you for adding more works all the time, it’s causing an awesome art domino effect. 🙂

    September 24, 2010 at 1:42 am

  49. Oh boy, this contest is heating up! You all deserve to win, in my eyes! Thanks for all the great comments. One thing I keep hearing is that I inspire you to keep doing your art, well, it is a two way street! Thank you for inspiring me daily, even if you don’t comment, I do know that you are out there, cheering me on, and that is HUGE.


    oh, and Chelsea, I LOVE cheese!

  50. Ellyn Otterson

    I know Chris from way back when here in GP, in West Side Story. I have seen a few of your works on FB and I really enjoy your lavish use of color. And this one reminds me of a little girl of mine who left this world way too soon.

    September 24, 2010 at 4:17 am

    • This breaks my heart. I am so sorry. I can not imagine anything worse. Not anything.

      September 25, 2010 at 4:45 am

  51. This is my favorite piece! I bought an ACEO of this a while back and I look at it almost every day. It’s good to remember the simple joys in life.

    September 24, 2010 at 5:05 pm

  52. Hil

    Ohh I love this painting. Add me!

    September 25, 2010 at 1:50 am

  53. I love her joyful expression! Hope I win, but if not, your art is always a delight!

    September 25, 2010 at 5:50 pm

  54. Becky

    I LOVE your tribute to McQueen. There is no way I could afford the original (no full-time job for 2 years) but I’d love to see a good LARGE print. Any plans in that direction?
    I enjoy your work and love your artistic expression. This little girl is sweetness on paper. Delightful.
    Keep working!

    September 26, 2010 at 2:37 am

  55. I am stunned with your work. The colours, the expressions, the detailed workings in the clothes and background–everything.
    Your work is very much like my own, maybe that is why I like it so much. You could be my younger sister in art!
    Congratulations on a fine series.

    September 27, 2010 at 6:19 am

  56. My beloved makepiece is in dissolution after 10 great years. It’s spirit will live on, though, in the hearts and activities of the many women and teens we’ve helped master new skills — just like this beautiful child will long remember and look for butterflies.

    September 27, 2010 at 11:42 am

  57. Maria, am so enjoying the pieces I have of yours. Your work is so unique, creates such an atmosphere, and is so beautiful. Thank you for being an inspiration. Especially enjoy paintings of your girls. This painting is so happy—no one could look at it without increasing their joy!

    September 29, 2010 at 7:10 am

  58. gaye

    if i win this is a gift for my grandgirl…. and i can drive over and pick it up…. my fingers are crossed. This is a great way to find out how many people are checking in with you…good go

    September 29, 2010 at 12:33 pm

  59. Yay ~ exciting news! What a beautiful give away, Maria. Your art never fails to inspire me. I particularly love your paintings of children, and “Joy” is one of my favourites!

    September 29, 2010 at 6:33 pm

  60. Aida.

    i own one of your ACEO originals (entitled “Joy”) which depicts the face of a girl with the same expression — i keep it framed to remind me to always be happy & carefree.
    this piece would make a great accompaniment (hint, hint!) ;o)
    nevertheless, this is truly another beautiful work of art!

    September 29, 2010 at 6:36 pm

  61. Sabrina O'Donnell

    September 30, 2010 at 1:14 am

  65. Zachary Supina

    I love your work, Maria. It’s honest, and it’s unique. You don’t see that much around these days. Everyone’s busy trying to imitate their favourite artists or follow trends. You don’t, and I admire that.

    September 30, 2010 at 2:21 am

  66. Ooh, a Maria Pace-Wynters give-a-way, count me in!! Gimmegimme!

    September 30, 2010 at 1:22 pm
